1-2-3 Come Make A Graduation Memory Book With Me
If you teach preschool or kindergarten and your kiddos are graduating, you might enjoy making this adorable Graduation Memory book, that's sure to become a cherished keepsake.
Here's How: Run off the mortarboard (graduation cap) pieces on a variety of colors, or give just 2 school color choices to your students.
They cut and glue together to make the back cover. Another cap makes the front cover.
Students could choose both of your school colors to make their cover. One color for the back and the other one for the front.
To add a bit of 3D pizzazz, poke a hole in the center, insert a brass brad and tie with a yarn tassel.
If you have the budget, there are many companies that you can buy real tassels from that include a year charm.
Choose which master pages you want to include in your booklets; run off the pages on white copy paper and distribute one at a time to them.
Students complete their pages, cut them out, collate in whatever order you want them to, and then add their cover.
Make sure you make a sample and then display each page on the board in the order you want them to assemble them.
Staple the pages together at the top point, so the booklet flips up.
To expedite things, for the "classmate" autograph page, have each student sign one page the day before, and then run it off.
Do the same thing with the "special" autograph page, by having the principal, secretary, librarian etc. sign one page.
For the "High five's!" page, you can paint your students' hand and then press it on their page, or have a room helper trace their hand on a sheet of construction paper and cut them out, so students can glue it to their page or have students choose a partner and have them trace each other's hand. When they are done, they can color their print.
I think the self-portrait page, as well as including a graduation photograph, will make this booklet even more special.
The last page is a short graduation poem, that was inspired by over a dozen others, that I found while Pinning away.
I hope you enjoy my version, and have as much fun making these memory books, as I did designing them. I wish you a wonderful graduation day.
